German term or phrase: tractor terms
Here are some more tractor terms taken from complaints from customers. Unfortunately, there is no further context because of the nature of the text (surveys). I would therefore just appreciate any ideas on translations bearing in mind the vehicle is a tractor.
Siebkasten
Kombischaltung
Standgaseinstellung
Lastschaltgruppe
Getriebeabstufung L/H (I am particularly interested in any ideas what L and H might stand for)
Thanks.

Just a few educated guesses, however, without context…
Siebkasten = Strainer Box
Kombischaltung = Combination Selector Lever
Standgaseinstellung = Idle adjustment
Lastschaltgruppe = Load Selector Grouping
Getriebeabstufung = Transmission Ratio
L = Low; H = High (also used in Germany)
